Looks like Olympus got the memo. You don't need what we traditionally think of as a camera to take pictures anymore.

A move by Olympus from the camera market to the taking picture market. The product is priced to move.

Valiant Thor: This camera is kind of like inventing an electric toilet seat. You could do it if you wanted to; but why?

That ought to earn a DPReview "Gold Award"

"Highly Recommended"

Then what?

Craig from Nevada: A case of mistaken identity--a $500 camera masquerading as a $750 camera.

This would probably be a decent value at $499.

Wildly overpriced.

LOL--the camera as we know it is becoming irrelevant. More people take pictures now than ever before and they don't need what we think of as cameras to do it.

Mirrorless and DSLR are converging to become a niche market.

$399 by Xmas.

They will not be able to move it at that price.

Craig from Nevada: This camera is going negatively impact all the camera makers and formats. The price is a barrier right now, but that will come down.

The term "game changer" is overused, but it might be applicable in this case.

More people are taking pictures than ever before. The problem is that they are not using what we think of us as a camera to do so. Sales are down. It is a tough market. This camera makes it tougher.

Matt: Ok a great camera with some excellent improvements. Two things are troublesome however. First, the lens selection is quite limited. They've put the cart before the horse again and some available are not top of the line. EX) the Zeiss 24-70 f/4. This USD$1k lens underperforms. Second Sony has continued with its disdain for existing customers. Here again their solution is to provide another model vs fixing existing. Case in point the lack of an electronic 1st curtain in ver 1 which could be resolved with a firmware update. I was truly hoping to make a platform switch as I do enjoy shooting with ver 1 but after seeing for myself Sony not holding themselves accountable for existing products + lack of top glass I will not spend anymore money on their products.

I think you have your cart and horse reversed.

DVT80111: >$3000 by Christmas for sure.
Black Friday, $2500 possible?

The natural price point for this camera is $2,999.99. The introductory price is to grab the early adapters and then it will settle in at $2999.99 in time for Black Friday.

FodgeandDurn: A few people are wondering what this means the A7s will have in store. I'm wondering if this makes the A7s' niche slightly obsolete (albeit at a higher price point).

Marco--they are appealing to everyone who doesn't have an A-7 and everyone who has one and dreams of the upgrade.

No. I think it enhances the A7's position all the way around. Full frame for all and the latest bells and whistles for those with deep pockets.

"The Sony α7R II full-frame interchangeable lens camera will be available in August for about $3200 at www.store.sony.com and a variety of Sony authorized dealers nationwide."

I was ready to make some smartass remark about $1,600 by Christmas, but this one might make me want to buy at a premium price.

In reply to:

SeeRoy: As the owner of an EM5 (I guess we have to retrospectively assign it a "MK1" label) this sort of nonsensical product says a great deal about Olympus, and indeed the entire camera business. If the MK2 itself is anything like the MK1 then addressing the cosmetics with a "limited edition" - for people stupid enough to care how the top plate looks - whilst failing to address the fact that the camera has only two good attributes embedded in a host of failings, is to treat the consumers as fools: probably correctly.
1) The files are excellent, other things being equal.
2) The camera is small and light.
However the general handling, firmware and ergonomics are pitifully bad.
There's also the fact that in an industry where the replacement cycle is engineered to a frequency of about 18 months, the idea of "collectability" (as in film era hardware) is just a joke.

I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley
